What a beautiful February day on the Muskegon River–diminishing winds, sunny skies, and afternoon warmth of 37 degrees. Clear waters–the norm lately, were replaced with stained and swift conditions by the lunch hour; this certainly to be expected with our rapidly disappearing snow pack. The first decent spring shuffle seamed underway today as chrome hens posed for the camera. JD of the Chicago-land area shared the beautiful scenery and the posed the bright steelhead for the camera. Conditions are slated to take a big turn by mid-morning tomorrow with 8-12 inches of heavy snow and ice by Monday morning; JD and I are going to try to sneak a half day in before conditions send us to the comforts of indoors.
